DATHeader - Michael Heidemann - 2013-07-31

I just released DATHeader version

This version of DATHeader accept files send by the new LDFind (version


Re: DATHeader - Michael Heidemann - 2013-09-05

Currently I am working on an update for DATHeader for the following:
BUGFIX: Philo reported that BFC CERTIFY NOCLIP is not detected and corrected.
NEW: The flag for alias files '=' needs to be implemented.

If you know something more that needs to be fixed or should be implemented, please let me know.

I know that also the low res folder is new (p\8\), but as I see this not as a common folder (only used for some special parts at present) I do not put my focus these days on this issue.

I've found that it corrects soft brackets around username, but doesn't tell me about it.
Isn't that a Hold vote?

Re: DATHeader - Santeri Piippo - 2013-09-05

You'll need to catch "0 BFC INVERTNEXT CLIP" as well as NOCLIP.

I do not know if this error should be worth a hold vote, but I feel no, because this error does not prevent the part from being showed correctly.

If I submit a part to the PT I always check with DATHeader and save the file before uploading.

Maybe I'll look what can be done to notify you if you only check a file.

But thank you very much for mention this!

To be more specific, I find the behaviour of DATHeader very strange.

If a file, that has the username in soft brackets, is opened in DATHeader, the brackets have been automagically replaced with hard bracket.
I want to do a review and run a scan for errors. No error is found.
I close the file, of course without saving it.
I then open it in LDDP or a text editor, and the soft brackets are still there.


Re: DATHeader - Michael Heidemann - 2013-09-09

The problem you describes is present. I am currently working on a solution that you will be notified if there are wrong brackets used or not.

I'll keep you updated.

Edit: Version is corrected for this issue.
